Editing the details of a deployed app

Now you can easily update the details of a deployed app, including the app name, description, or version. Simply navigate to the Orchestrator folder where the app was deployed, open the Automations > Apps page, access the More actions menu for the desired app, click Edit app details, and make the necessary changes with ease.

Auditing machine maintenance actions

The Audit Data window for the Sessions component now includes the Maintenance field, which displays the status of the Maintenance option for unattended machines. 1 marks the enabled status of the machine maintenance mode, and 0 marks its disabled status.

Support for S3 buckets with SSE-KMS

Orchestrator now supports server-side encryption with AWS Key Management Service keys (SSE-KMS) for Amazon S3 storage buckets.

New limits on transaction details

We are enforcing the following maximum limits on transaction details fields, in an effort to prevent system overload:

  • Specific data - 1 MB

  • Output data - 1 MB

  • Analytics data - 1 MB

  • Exception reason - 524,288 characters

  • Exception details - 524,288 characters

Performance improvements

The performance of fetching items from folders with large numbers of assets has been improved.

13 November 2023

Running jobs via API calls

Orchestrator now provides you with a streamlined way of executing jobs through a third-party application of your choice.

To that end, we are introducing API triggers, a means to generate an API endpoint that allows you to run a job from an external application. All you need to do is create a trigger based on a process, copy the resulting URL, paste it into your tool, and authorize the request - this will run the job with the parameters you define.

These are the new items that you'll notice in the interface as part of this launch:

  • the API Triggers option in the Automations > Triggers section

  • the API Trigger option in the Add Trigger list of the process contextual menu

  • several tenant settings to be found on the General tab:

    • CORS allow list for API triggers (in the API Settings section)

    • Require Authentication header for sync API Triggers redirects (in the API Settings section)

    • Triggers - API Triggers - Maximum pending jobs limit (in the Execution settings section)

Find out more general information about API triggers, learn how to manage them, then see how to run a job via an API trigger.

Authenticating external feeds

External feeds used for libraries can now also be secured through basic authentication credentials, as is already the case for packages.

Re-triggering queue triggers

We are upping the effectiveness of our queue triggering system with a new option: After completing jobs, reassess conditions and start new jobs if possible. When selected, the queue trigger is evaluated after each job completion, aiming to identify any resources that could be put towards processing remaining queue items. This prevents the inefficient use of our infrastructure, as it ensures that there are no idle robots and stagnant queued items simultaneously.

Checking assigned roles and permissions

Our mission of optimizing the access control framework continues with a significant improvement to the roles and permissions check window.

Up until now, all tenant and folder roles were bundled in one list, without details on permissions. Now, you not only have access to more information, but you also benefit from a friendlier view: roles are displayed in separate tenant and folder categories, all permissions included in each granted role are visible at a glance, and filtering by role or folder allows you to focus on the precise details that are of interest to you.

Directory user events handling in Orchestrator

Now, any changes made to your directory users in Automation Cloud - including updates or deletions - are reflected within your Orchestrator's user list and audit logs across all tenants.

In more detail, Orchestrator now logs the updates or deletions under the following descriptor: User System Administrator updated/deleted account {user_mail}. For a full breakdown of the changes, click View Details in Audit Data.

When a directory user is deleted:

  1. Any connected robots will also be automatically deleted.

  2. Associated personal workspaces will become orphaned. These can still be explored, or you can choose to convert them into modern folders.

Please note, a delay may be experienced whilst synchronizing these updates from Automation Cloud to Orchestrator.

Decreasing the storage limit for input/output arguments

The storage limit for input/output arguments is currently 1 MB for Free and Community customers, and 30 MB for Enterprise customers. However, we are now rolling out the 1 MB limit to Enterprise as well, to be enforced soon.

New update system for machines in cloud pools

We understand the importance of ensuring your automation's compatibility with the latest UiPath software versions. To empower you in this endeavor, we are introducing a new update option that complements the default one:

Introducing Delayed auto-update: In the past, UiPath software updates were regularly deployed to your VMs two weeks after a new version was released. With the Delayed auto-update option, you can now postpone the update by one Enterprise version.

Example: Let's say the current UiPath software version is 2023.10, and you select the delayed auto-update option. The installed software on your VMs remains at version 2023.4, until you're ready to update.

Security first: Your security is our top priority. Any software versions containing critical security fixes are automatically and immediately pushed to your VMs, regardless of your chosen update option.

Enjoy greater flexibility in managing your UiPath software versions.


This option is available during the creation of Automation Cloud Robots - VM and Elastic Robot pools.

Bringing your own image for Automation Cloud Robots pools

Your Automation Cloud Robots experience has taken another leap forward. You can now provision VMs using a familiar setup – your personal cloud hard drive.

This enhancement is designed with your convenience in mind. Here's what you need to know:

Effortles image replication: If you already have a setup in your cloud subscription, you can now create a copy of the image and upload it as the base image for your Automation Cloud Robots VMs.

Time-saving: Say goodbye to the headache of migrating from your on-premises or cloud-managed infrastructure to Automation Cloud Robots VMs.

Simplified software installation: No more constant remote desktop connections to add required software. The new provisioning method eliminates the back-and-forth, making it more efficient and user-friendly. Your time is better spent on your automation tasks, not software installations.

Customized robot account: You can now run jobs under your preferred robot account, enhancing control over your automation projects.

Upgrade your Automation Cloud Robots experience today with this new feature.
